LOVE the banner.... just what's needed to get one in the Halloween mood! Now... with a cup of pumpkin latte, you'd be all set.

that banner is fabulous. now i'm on the hunt for the fabric so i can copy you! LOVE it!

I love your banner! And your mantle looks fabulous.


Halloween decorations are appearing here in Mexico-garish colored ceramic pumpkins with leering faces. Nothing as good looking as the hooked pumpkin on your mantle. We're going to the vortex of Day of the Dead celebrations in a town called Patzcuaro at the end of the month. Looking forward to seeing what that's all about.

I LOVE this! Well done, it looks absolutely spooky!


Your mantle decor is so charming with that adorable banner, pumpkin ornaments and orange vase of flowers. Can't wait to see your next hooked pumpkin, too. I love Mary Stanley's hooked owls - I wish there were kits to buy! Oh, and your hash brown waffles look sooo good!

I just ordered that banner online.....how did you back it? Iron-on interfacing??? Very cool!!


So the banner is reversible? You used bonding stuff to fuse the two fabrics together then pinked the edges? WAY Spooky Cute! I haven't been in a fabric store in ages, but I so love Halloween decorative items. Can't put any pumpkins outside, the temps are in the high 90's :>( so the poor things would roast before Halloween gets here. We're 15 degrees above normal. Yikes. Passed one of the local pumpkin patches today, they have too many rotting pumpkins to ever sell, so I imagine this will be a loss year for these venders. Still getting sunburned here in the wild, wild west, robbing me of my favorite season.


Love love love the finished banner!!
